James McKeen Cattell, editor of Science and the first professor of psychology in the United States at the University of Pennsylvania, announces that he is trying to raise $5,000 to help John Scopes take graduate courses in biology at a university somewhere.

So far, a little over $1,000 has been donated. Professor Maynard M. Metcalf of Johns Hopkins and Professor Kirtley Mather of Harvard both chair the Scopes fund committee.

James Cattell says:

"He's entirely without financial resources. Scientific men who were in Dayton during the trial and came to know him are trying to raise the necessary $5,000.

Any sum in excess will be devoted to promotion of the scientific study of evolution."
